At twenty yards the animal poked it's head out from the tall grass. It was a hog! I know it was getting late, but I told myself that if I had a good shot I would take it. The hog continued to rummage through the leaves. He was either attracted by the smell of the deboned goat or just coincidentally made his way to us. At about fifteen yards he turned broadside and started to work his way back towards the grass. I had a shot and was prepared to take it. Already being in position, I slowly drew back, aimed and released the arrow. The hog bolted through the grass and after a mad dash, the noise stopped. I went back to Staci and we finished up with her goat. By the time we were all packed up, it was about six o'clock. I told Staci to stay on the trail and I would do my best to guess where the hog went. She tracked while I zigzagged my way through the thick grass. Finding hogs in this thick stuff is hard during the day and even harder at night. I picked up the trail a few times, so I had Staci jump ahead to where I was. The hog had actually traveled a lot further than I thought. Staci stayed persistent with her tracking and she ended up walking right into it. For some reason, it had just enough energy to make one last dash towards her. Staci swung her bow at it and it turned and piled up into the bushes. I ran to the boar, removed an arrow from my quiver and fired one last shot to be safe, but he wasn't going anywhere.

Unfortunately I didn't make time to take photos with the boar, I just wanted to get it cleaned as quick as possible. We removed our deboning kit again and put on our headlamps. By the time we were done, the sun had set. We packed up everything, then took a quick break to rest and reflect. I removed my camera to film a quick video of the day's events. Here's a screen shot from that video.

I knew it was going to be a tough hike back to the truck, but we were both so excited that it didn't bother us one bit. Just all smiles home! [Big Grin]
